Into a Routine

Gina and I never talked about the business with Martin

She never asked

I never volunteered any details

She knows what I am capable of

What I do when necessary

We went about our lives without talking about Martin

And Martin never came around or called again

The dadmobile was visibly absent

Goodnight to all that.

But where do we go from here?

I'm wondering if I'm going to be part of her life

Included in family-like activities, not just hired muscle

I want to be included

I'll sleep on your couch tonight

If I can end up in your bed tomorrow?

I do have a strong physical attraction

Do you feel the same?

Gina was hard to read

Some days she wanted me around

She almost begged me to stay over

On other days I was invisible

The week I had out-of-town business

She blew up my phone

I miss you

Where are you

So I said, "I don't know, Gina, where are we?"

Her response: "What do you mean?"

I told her, some days I feel like your boyfriend other days

Not so much

Johnny, you saved me, I need you around will you be home


Tomorrow night, babe

Can't wait sweetheart
